Employment Law This Week - Remote Work and Reasonable Accommodations [VIDEO]

October 27, 2021

This week, we focus on the uptick in requests for remote work as a reasonable accommodation during COVID-19 and what employers should consider when addressing them.

Remote Work and Reasonable Accommodations

A recent Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) disability discrimination lawsuit shows the agency is closely watching and is interested in litigating cases where an employer fails to provide employees with reasonable accommodations in connection with requests for remote work during the pandemic. As these requests continue to increase due to COVID-19, attorney Shira Blank tells us more about the EEOC lawsuit and what it could mean for employers in the future.
